Sunday Message: The Motivation for Ministry

November 14, 2021

Today’s Reading: Acts 20:17-38

Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. 

Acts 20:28

Sermon Main Idea: THE CHURCH’S MOTIVATION IS NOT WHAT WE CAN GET, BUT WHAT GOD HAS ALREADY GIVEN.

Text Notes:

  • GOD GAVE PAUL A RACE TO RUN. (V.17-27)
  • GOD GAVE THE EPHESIANS A CHURCH TO SHEPHERD. (V.28-35)
  • PAUL CONTINUES TO RUN HIS RACE. (V36-38)

Prayer: LORD God, thank You for continuing to further Your Kingdom, and for the privilege of being able to partake in the work You set before us Your people. Please align us with Your will, LORD. Help us to increasingly trust in You. Help us to live our lives for the sake of Your Glory and Your Church. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN.
